About Donna Reese-Gentile

My husband and I came to San Diego in 2007 from Sag Harbor, New York. We came for the fantastic weather, the incredible golfing, and all of the amenities that San Diego has to offer. This includes Balboa Park, the great beaches, Sea World, fireworks at night, picnics on the ocean, theatre, great restaurants, and most of all, the amazing view from the terrace of this spectacular house.

Donna Reese-Gentile purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Donna Reese-Gentile chose Pacific Beach

We chose Pacific Beach because it is very central. Everything is about 20 minutes away. The ocean is a mile away, and there is a constantly changing view from the terrace. It is mesmerizing. A grocery store, restaurants, shops, bars are five minutes away. There is plenty of parking, no noise and yet, you are in the middle of everything.

What makes this apartment unique

At this property, you have a beautiful new apartment with a huge private terrace and a view that everyone says cannot be captured in the photos. It is quiet, secure and peaceful. The jacuzzi and pool are great at night after a long day of sightseeing. Restaurants are close, the hammock is relaxing, and all of this makes for a holiday that you will long remember.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to San Diego for about 10 years now. Villa Donna has been our favorite place to stay. The apartment was more than we expected. The view was gorgeous! We hope to come back again next year. Many thanks.

Go ahead and splurge on this one

  • 5 of 5

The owners have spent a lot of time and effort into making this a premier rental property. Everything you could want is in the unit from beach chairs, extra towels and pillows to restaurant recommendations. If you ever want to experience the California dream for a few days in San Diego, this is the place to do it. The location is so convenient and there are several very good restaurants close enough to walk to. Our only complaint is that we had to come back home to reality.

Wonderful San Diego home with a view

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing more you could wish for at this lovely home. The owner Donna has thought of everything even down to a self made booklet giving information on shopping, restaurants, places of interest etc, etc. The views from the rear of the property are fantastic. Breakfast on the patio every morning just relaxing by watching the waves hit the beach!

Better then I could have imagined

  • 5 of 5

This suite is perfect! Well appointed with everything you could need. The owners have thought of everything, kitchen, bathrooms, laundry and even the beachy items are fully stocked. Bring your food and a camera - the view is amazing and it's hard to capture in any picture.

The owners were very helpful and so kind, they even invited us (2 adults and 2 boys under 6) for a lovely breakfast and visit in their home upstairs.

I enjoyed my stay very much - I hope we can return soon!

San Diego is a beautiful city with amazing beaches, great restaurants and lots of attractions (the only thing we were less then impressed with was Sea World, I would save the $ and skip that if I were to do it again)

Wonderful, inviting, and gracious . . . the rental was perfect, too!

  • 5 of 5

I must admit that this review is over a year late because we actually stayed at the Villa Donna in Nov. 2013 but the memory of the trip, accommodations, and our new friends, the hosts Bill and Donna, will not be forgotten. We stayed for a week of golf and relaxation. The pictures of the property speak for themselves and as they say a picture is worth a thousand words. The property is centrally located to many activities, the freeway, and great food. What the pictures don't show are your gracious hosts, Donna and Bill. We were honored to be invited up to their place for wine and hors d'oeuvres. What a great evening sharing a lifetime of experiences and adventures. Anyone can have a beautiful property but it is the hosts that truly make it a memorable experience. l would absolutely recommend this property without reservation.

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Viila Donna for 8 nights and enjoyed it immensely. The pictures did not do it justice. The panoramic view from the patio was so nice, we chose to stay at home more nights than we went out. It was a restful and beautiful location. The hosts Donna and Bill were so friendly and helpful. They even invited the 5 of us for breakfast and boy can Bill cook. We would recommend this rental and hope that we will be able to stay again!
